Until then, here are some cute things I recently acquired.
I found this cute mossy basket at a local antique shop in one of the charity booths. It was $4.
I also recently bought this box of green speckled eggs at TJMaxx for $5. They will be perfect for my idea!
I also scored these darling plates at TJ Maxx for $3.99 each. They only had four of the dinner plates in this green color (the photo is a little dark, but these are a pretty light green.) They also had other ones that looked like this in a golden yellow color. They had more of the yellow ones; dinner plates, salad plates and bowls. But I really wanted this green color. Hmmmm....green plates, green speckled eggs, green mossy basket... do we see a trend here??
I love this little rag doll bunny. I wonder if I can find a way to incorporate her into a table scape?? I did not make the bunny doll, but I did sew her dress.
Many moons ago, when I was much younger, a craft store I used to go to frequently had these rag doll bunnies for purchase and you could also purchase the pattern for the dress. The lacy middy collar is actually a rectangular Battenburg lace doily with a slit cut in the center and sewed into the neck of the dress. I'm not much of a sewer, but this pattern was relatively simple. I used fabric from the remnants bin and then used coordinating ribbon for the bows on the bunny's ears and for her dress sash. I actually made several of these; I think there were five of them in total. I had the dress pattern for a long time, but eventually the craft store no longer had the rag doll bunnies available.Unfortunately I do not have the dress pattern anymore either, since this was probably 1989 when I made these. Three of the bunnies I made as Easter gifts. The other two were given to each of my grandmothers. I named the two bunnies after their mothers (my great-grandmothers). This bunny is Pauline, which was my maternal great-grandmother's "American" name (I believe her real name was Pelagia, which is the Polish version of Paula or Pauline). After my maternal grandmother passed away when I was twenty-one in 1991, I got Pauline back. She had sat on a pretty bench in my grandparent's bedroom and my mom thought that it was only right that I get to have her. I think she needs some new ribbons though. Twenty one years have gone by and they are looking a little frayed!
